SNAP is a federal program that provides food-purchasing assistance to low-income households. In Alabama, the Food Assistance Division of the Department of Human Resources administers the SNAP program, and benefits are paid out monthly via EBT cards.

Your Alabama EBT card can be used just like a debit card upon checkout at participating locations in stores and online. Look for the Quest logo at grocery stores and some retail locations. You can also use your EBT card at farmers’ markets that are authorized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Eligibility and benefit amounts are based on income and household size,  which are determined by regulations issued by the USDA. According to the Alabama DHR, the average monthly benefit is about $121.
